Caught this off a link from Slashdot. It's some really neat video of some plasma loops bursting from the sun.
What I thought was the coolest is how you can see them actually get sucked back in by the gravity of the sun. I'm not sure of the scale here, so I
don't know of big the loops are, but I thought it was just beautiful nonetheless.
I'm niave to how the sun works and all, so I don't know what this actually is, but it sure is pretty.
If you cant to see the directory of all the movies, here's the link...some interesting anamatics in there about the deployment of the telescope used
to shoot this stuff as well as it's orbit around the earth.
That was so cool... did you notice that little red dot that doesnt move in the video? what was that? a speck on the lens? Awesome find there The
Big O I love looking at solar flares they are a beautiful sight kinda like looking at a lava lamp but on a massive scale.
